Top Five Friday...My First Giveaway!

This week's Top Five Friday is devoted to you guys! It's my first giveaway, and I'm very excited! One giveaway, five things, some new, some lovingly used. Let's play!

#5. One of my most favorite books, The Scandalous Summer of Sissy LeBlanc. I have had this book for a number of years, and I read it every summer. I've finally decided that I've read it enough, and I'm ready to pass it on to someone else to enjoy.

#4. This cute little number! I bought this pink and green apron from Williams-Sonoma maybe 2 or 3 years ago and I think it is just precious. However, after buying many many aprons I've decided that the best fit for me is the half/skirt apron. So this one's going to one of you!

#3. A $5 gift card to one of my most favorite establishments...Starbucks! My favorite drink is a tall caramel latte with whipped cream, but you can get whatever you please. Mmmm!

#2. A Vera Bradley brag book. Everyone has someone to brag about; precious children, a spoiled pet, a cute hubby, or wonderful friends, and this is the perfect way to keep pictures of your loved ones with you!

#1. A box of Organic Chocolate Truffles from Whole Foods. I discovered these this past Christmas and I can say I was addicted after my first one! They just melt in your mouth and you can easily eat ten or more without realizing it.
